Achieve high grades just as someone would for their a-levels and it'll look great on your application. Ultimately, it does depend on what you want to study and what university you want to go to however many many universities are fine with it.

I was happy with my decision to do a BTEC in Applied Science and I am now a physiotherapy student
Good luck!

Hey,appreciate the response,so it wouldn’t look bad if I have done 3 years at college even though my grades meet entry requirements?

No, if anything it shows that you as an applicant are determined to achieve and study a course and have been willing to put in some extra years of college in order to get yourself to university. Universities will also know that no one is perfect, and that you may well have your own reasons for not being successful the first time round. Put it this way, if you have the qualifications to do the course there is no way they can deny you in regards to lack of qualification.

And don't forget, your personal statement including some work experience mention will also give you a boost when it comes to applying.
